In a survival situation, a wrong decision could spell the difference between life and death. No one knows this better than Les Stroud, who has survived everywhere from the sun-scorched sands of the Kalahari to the snake-infested jungles of the Amazon. In Will to Live, Les examines many incredible true life survival stories--explaining what happened and why, and offering valuable perspectives on what went right, what went wrong, and what could have been done differently. The tales in Will to Live include: Chris McCandless--the subject of the book and movie Into the Wild.Yossi Ghinsberg--who survived alone in the Amazon for twenty-one days.Douglas Mawson--the Antarctic "superman" who survived three hellish months at the bottom of the planet.Nando Parrado--who was trapped for two months high in the Andes after a plane crash killed his friends and family.Plus . . . stories from Les's own experiences, along with practical sidebars with tips on how to escape quicksand, butcher a moose, cross a snow-covered crevasse, and more.Provocative and entertaining, Will to Live is a compilation of history's most intriguing survival stories from one of the world's foremost experts.
